Three Jasper County Farms join ranks of Iowa’s Century Farms
312 years of family farming in Jasper County recognized at Iowa State Fair
Last month, during the Iowa State Fair, Iowa Secretary of Agriculture Bill Northey recognized Century and Heritage Farm families during a special ceremony. Of the 365 Century Farm families recognized, three were from Jasper County.
A farm owned by Lynn Kleinendorst of Newton was the first Jasper County farm recognized for the Century Farm designation. Located one mile southeast of the Iowa Speedway, the farm has been in the same family’s ownership since 1912.
The second farm recognized with Century Farm status was owned by Craig M. Linn, also of Newton. His family has owned the farm in rural Newton since 1913.
